And now for something completely different… The Bellbirds!

Here’s my band… The Bellbirds (from left – Sandy Mill, Don McGlashan, me, Sean Donnelly).  We’ll be playing the Parihaka Festival in January 2010 and Womad 2010 in March.  No drums, all acoustic, simple arrangements, a funny old missionary organ (I call it the Thighmaster because I have to operate the bellows with my feet when I play it) and lots of 4 part harmony.  Last night we gave a special performance of our new songs for family and friends at Galatos Lounge.  It was a wonderful night.  Thanks to our  audience for actually listening!   And thanks to Nick Atkinson for the photo.
